+1 to Steve. Some use e-mail signatures. Some don't. Some fill them 
with religion. Some fill them with some variant of the opposite. A 
conforming e-mail program would as well *display* a signature as a 
signature. In the e-mail programs I have used, that means that its text 
is displayed in gray, slightly hard to read, color. Plus that the 
program doesn't quote the signature, in replies. *That* is technical.
